Bridge 8/3

Tryon Edwards, who died in 1894, was an American theologian best known for compiling the "New Dictionary of Thoughts," a book of quotations.

Ask Dr. Gott 8/2

DEAR DR. GOTT: Perhaps you would address a problem I have: nasal polyps. They are so severe that the polyps block off my nasal passages completely and have to be removed surgically with a high-speed cutting tool with suction. This has been going on for about six years, and removal must be done as often as every six to 15 months. There doesn't appear to be any cure, just cutting them out when they become too large and block my breathing. I have had allergy testing done and nothing major showed up. I hope you know more about this ...

Kathy Bradley: Flirting with the sunrise

The color of this early morning in not-quite spring is liquid lavender, is pearly pink, is slightly silver in the way it glints and glows. The sky and the fields and everything in them are shaded as though tinted by a crayon unwrapped and swiped across the countryside with its long barrel, the sharp tip forgotten. Outlines and details are unimportant to the day as it languorously wakens.
